COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle. Also available in keg for export only. The very occasional cask version is only available in the UK and has a separate listing.
Goldings hops and Golden Promise malt.
At 8.5% ABV, Golden Pride guarantees a superb range of flavours, that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Our brewers describe Golden Pride thus: í deep amber in appearance, Golden Pride is full bodied, of moderate bitterness, moderately hopped and rich in malt. Full flavoured, and reminiscent of sweet orange oil, toasted grains, and bread. Rich malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with an intense finish. Sweet and bitter flavours are expressed in good balance in this weighty brew.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

mutz (898) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Van de tap in de klep, ABT bier van de maand. Helder roodbruin bier. Ruikt wat zurig en moutig. Smaakt idem. Medium body. De 8,5 procent alcohol valt niet op. Niet zo mijn smaak.

CanCrusher (897) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber colour, with small light brown head. Rich and intensive sweety aroma of orange, peach, ananas, caramel. Full bodied ale, lightly sweet at the start, but then turns into a bitter aftertaste. You can feel the taste of smoke and cask wood in the mouth. There is also a sign of alcohol in the background. Very nice balanced beer.

Sdaniel90 (895) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fullerís best.

zimbo (891) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2012
WIll always conside this a Barley Wine as has been said on the Fullerís website and as defines so by Michael Jackson. Forms a very easy head and has a clean intense sparkling orangy glow similar to Remy Martin VSOP. Constant head, nutty nose not unlike honey roasted cashews. Chewy with a good deepish bitter end. Once swallowed the long aftertyaste suggests a warming strong tasblet/caramel quality which is heavy but subtle. Very fine.

Deep amber reddish color, with little head. Aroma of caramel,oak, malts, friuts fruits. Taste is the same with no hidden alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation. Interesting beer but no superlative.

Listigovers (874) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
This beer was really just so moderate in every regard that it is hard to find words to properly describe it. Medium bodied, moderate malty aroma, moderate bitterness, medium length aftertaste, mildly alcoholic flavour, fairly smooth. It was well made, no doubt, but without strong character.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
Beautiful deep amber colour and a nice clinging head. Extremely malty (toffee) and vinuous with a very warming alcohol presence. Excellent for a cold winter evening. Lacking the complexity and woodlike touch of the Vintage Ales, but still a great beer.

Bottle.50cl. Nice english bitter, with a small hint of diacityl and that gives the beer a good sweetness to the bitter notes of the beer.
